Hello, I am Miss Young. I received the following email. It is a socalled
"Advance Fee Fraud" letter, where I am promised millions for
my assistance. These stories are all lies, and if I respond, sooner
or later I will be asked to pay a fee. If I pay, another fee will quickly
come up, and it will continue that way until I give up or run out of
money. I will never see the millions, because they never existed.

> Before his death, I assisted him in the deposit of some contract funds

> his death and such unclaimed funds are appropriated and returned to the
> treasury after 4 years as a matter of banking policy. Considering the lack
> of success in my bid to locate any of his relatives for over 3 years
> now, I hereby solicit your consent to enable me present you to the bank as
> the beneficiary Next of Kin to my deceased client.
> I am contacting you Firstly because I strongly believe that the Bank does
> not deserve to confiscate the funds and these reasons led to my resolve to
> contact you to claim the funds.
> Know that this deal is 100% risk free because I have in my possession the
> personal file of the deceased which contains some of the information we
> shall need to prove your legal relationship with my late client, which means
> that the fund will definitely be paid into the account of whoever I present
> to the bank as his next of kin. Moreover this is a legal and risk free
> transaction that does not in anyway hamper or contravene the monetary laws
